newt gingrich. >> that, of course, was the best actual political theater of 2012, tony award winner john lithgow's reading of the press release, i think it was. but let's do the best political theater of 2012, and we'll now start with alex wagner again, because she is demanding. >> it is a contractual obligation. it was the best, because i couldn't believe it was happening in mid-august. mitt romney took to the white board to explain what he was doing with medicare. which, in and of itself was a hoax, but the notion that this man would have this horribly stage-managed moment in an effort to show he was all about business. he cemented every narrative out there. >> i don't know if the mice can pick it up, but the drinks are being spilled there over at that table. krystal ball, the best political theater. >> well, i also have a newt gingrich moment when he turned questions about him asking his former wife for an open marriage, parlayed into a debate moment, a huge applause moment. and then parlayed that into an actual victory in the south carolina primary. that was an incredible moment
and '93 when clinton worked with newt gingrich. we have examples of presidential leadership. obama is pathetic. this is awful. this doesn't solve any problem at all. when i listen to the senator toomey and senator johnson i think we know what is going to happen now. it is going to pass the senate in the next 24 hours. go to the house. and i spoke to a couple of house members, republicans, who will be he given permission from boehner to do what? vote against it. they are going to get all of the democrats, 20, 30, 35 republicans, it is going to pass. the republicans won't be primaried in the next election by other tea party members. so the train is on the track and as an american it sickens me to watch my government not work and to watch a president who is pathetic and not solve the problem. >> sean: actually i'm hearing another story as well. and this s what -- and joe i did speak to someone that was in the meeting i'm sure the white house will be glad to hear that tonight and the impression that this individual got coming out of the meeting is the following. that the president want

to name some -- and newt gingrich's press release and any number of comments from him. >> but there's more. let's take a look at what i'm going to call the most monumental piece of found that didn't make it into that montage. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> i didn't want to disappoint. >> we've got to see that. i'm not sure and i wonder what jimmy would say about this, i don't know if that's the moment when the election was lost. i think when romney said self-deport and offended millions of hispanics and losing that community for good, that is the moment that it was truly lost. after that the ship had already sailed. we were in garbage time and didn't realize it. >> jimmy, let's not forget the war on women which was all in our heads, we had todd akin, rush limbaugh's comment on sandra fluke. >> t
. >> you know, thing is something to that culturally. the irony to that of course is newt gingrich initiated this revolution in which he changed the culture to be very deferential to the leader. all of the sudden the house leadership was controlling who was the committee. he took the power out of the committee chairs and centralized it in the speakers -- in the minority leader's offices and the speaker's offices. and all of that really did change the way the entire house worked to make it more like the nancy pelosi house that we saw in the congress before it was taken over by boehner. >> salute and you do what you're told. >> party line votes. if you need to deliver the votes, you can. now it's coming apart there is no road map or diagram or architect in place for what the next iteration of what the house culture looks like from a parliamentary perspective. >> there is no -- one of the things that i think is most important about that is that there is no credibility that can be held by any member of the house that would give them sway over other members of the house on the republic
